little questions regarding the new sxpansions...
« on: April 18, 2014, 01:19:09 PM »
hello everyone!
I have some little questions regarding Hills & Sheeps and The German Monasteries...
well...
I know that there are not clear answer regarding the connections between the plague and others expansion, but if the Shepherd and his Sheep can be eat by the Dragon, the Plague kills them in the same way? if so... if I decide to move my shephered to escape from the plague, does his sheep move with him?
For the German Monasteries... I don't understand if when I play with them I must eliminate the cloister from the base game or if I can use both of them... anyway... there will be some connection between The German Monasteries and the Shrine?

Happy Easter to all!!!

...weeeel about the Easter... for you the easter bunny can be kill by the Dragon or the Plague?!?!? eheheh... I know that the bunny is not a follower, but it will be very funny!   >:D

The shepherd is not a follower, so it can't be moved like a follower to escape from the plague.

Here is the link to the discusion about how many monasteries are useful...
Cundco.de news! New expansion available - Die kloster

My answer:
Quote
If you play only the tiles of the base game, then 12 monasteries or cloisters are to much. That is the reason why HiG use the replacement of the "original" monasteries /cloisters.

The rules says: remove the 6 origninal monasteries(cloisters) and put the new 6 German monasteries into the game...

For the Easter-Bunny expansion promoted by HiG: The bunny is killed by the dragon.

The shepherd is not a follower, so it can't be moved like a follower to escape from the plague.
Ah, but if it is not a Follower, it also shouldn't be killed by the Plague. Yet I'd wager that it can be killed by the Plague, thereby suggesting it can be moved (with its flock) as if it were a Follower.

Perhaps we need to make a new category of wood: Near-Followers. Figures that sometimes act as Followers but other times do not.

And I know I would never get any answer - all the questions about the plague.

Ah, the Plague questions don't get answered by HiG representatives? That's unfortunate.

The Plague is a mini expansion published by the spielbox magazine.

So HiG has no answer.

And the only answer what I get from Spielbox is:
"This expansion was created only for the basic game".

Last Year at Spiel 2013 in Essen I didn't have the choice to bring both Spielbox and HiG to one table and to talk together about these rules problems...

Yeah, I rather figured that was the case, though I had hoped HiG had some say in the creation of its promo expansions. I never liked The Tunnel rule that allows other tunnels to be used like the Spielbox tunnels. If there is no official position on The Plague rules, then I say it's open for interpretation. I think the Shepherd should be able to move his flock even though he isn't a Follower. I mean, he can get eaten by the dragon, after all. I guess it's a good thing that The Cult and The Cathar (Beseigers) are both HiG expansions as well as Spielbox. Fewer rules issues. I wonder where that leaves The Little Houses.
